" last May in a bittersweet ouster after 17 years, is speaking out about her departure, saying it was marked by "blood. " "It did involve blood," Lucey, whose contract was not renewed, wrote on her blog, "God and Gossip.

New guy was saying when I spoke I made his eyes bleed.

This is the story of Dorothy and the Wizards of Ooze. Dorothy is KCBS Channel 2 reporter Dorothy Lucey, who drew the short straw in being assigned to last week's grimy ratings-sweeps series on sleaze. Yes, news series. The "wizards" are the Channel 2 executives who conceived or approved or condoned this incredibly cynical exercise in audience manipulation by a flagship station of CBS, the network with the most honored tradition in all of TV news.

I had the misfortune of tuning in to Channel 11 (KTTV, 10:30 a.m.) to watch the Rose Parade with Dorothy Lucey and Mark Thompson doing the reporting. I had to listen to both talk about how badly they needed to go to the bathroom, her bladder problem, the droppings of the horses, etc. Then they kept telling of the station's 30-second-only commercials, which ran about every three minutes. Consequently, I missed seeing the floats of the Rose Queen and her court, the Queen's Trophy, the Washington Huskies and who knows what else.

"How'd They Do That?" is the prototypical, generic, low-budget, wake-me-when-it's-over reality series. After tonight's premiere, you may be asking: Why'd they do that? A slow-moving hour that takes "those special moments that peak our curiosity" and renders them forgettable, "How'd They Do That?"

New York-based entertainment reporter Julie Chang will join Fox 11's "Good Day L.A. " as the morning show's entertainment reporter and anchor. Chang will join anchors Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone. Chang, who most recently worked for Fox-owned WNYW Fox 5, will also be the entertainment reporter for "Fox 11 Morning News.

Her reporting goes beyond the predictable facts and interviews, taking viewers on a suspenseful ride, filled with genuine energy and a sense of humor all her own. " The hiring of Chang is the latest revamp in the newscast since the recent departures of co-anchors Dorothy Lucey and Jillian (Barberie)
